Conventional home loans quite simply are defined as loans that are not backed by a federal agency, such as the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, U.S. Department of Agriculture or Federal Housing Administration. Borrowers with a stable job, income, and good credit are great candidates for conventional home loans.
Conventional Home Loans
Compared to government-backed products, conventional home loans are more flexible in their terms and have fewer restrictions. For instance, conventional home loan borrowers can avoid the cost of private mortgage insurance(PMI) when they make the standard 20% down payment. Or they can choose to pay for PMI but make a smaller down payment.
Other advantages to conventional loans include:
- Fewer penalties and fees
- Good interest rate for borrowers with good credit
- Flexible terms (length)
- Option for second home purchases
- Flexible need for mortgage insurance
